Environmental Advisory Council

Mission Statement

The Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) comprises of appointed volunteers who researches and advises the Board of Supervisors on environment-related concerns and initiatives, working with township staff and other township boards and committees to achieve our mission:  to educate, facilitate and promote sustainable practices within the township and the greater community through educational workshops and programs, articles and community events.
